I need to build an executable with an instrument library

Good day.  I am trying to build an executable which needs to include an instrument library (specifically AW2602A).  I have followed the help file directions on building an executable, but it does not work.  I think the problem is that the library is not included in the executable. 

Thank you for your time and help.

What exactly doesn't work? Do you get errors during the build process? Does it not work when installed on a different computer? Do you get an error message. If so, what is the error code? Is the top level VI calling the instrument functions dynamically? What version of LabVIEW are you using?

Good day.  I am sorry for not giving more details about the problem.  Okay, I build the executable on one computer and then move it to another.  When I try and run the executabe I cannot select the IEEE-488 address of the spectrum analyzer.  Using the Measurement & Automation Explorer I can talk to the spectrum analyzer.  There was no error number provided, but the error message stated that the program could not find the spectrum analyzer. 

If you need more information please let me know and I will get it to you as quickly as possible.

Thank you.

Did you include NI-VISA with the installer you created for the exe or did you install NI-VISA when you installed the driver for the GPIB board? You can look at all of the software installed by expanding the software listing in MAX.

Good day.  Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you. 

The missing NI-VISA was the cause of my problems.  I installed it and everything works great. 

Have a good day, a better tomorrow, and a really great week.
